Known Issues and Limitations

  • At this moment, only two applications from APS Catalog support PHP7 on clients’ web sites: WordPress and Drupal.
  • The OPCache module is disabled by default on Windows because of the PHP issue This issue affects only the sites with different PHP versions running in the same IIS application pool. If this issue does not affect your site, you can enable the OPCache module (click PHP Settings and set on for the opchache.enable option).
  • PHP 7 is not yet displayed in the list of components in Tools & Settings >Server Components on Linux. This will be fixed in the next Plesk updates.
  • PHP7 is available for Plesk 12.5 only.
